1 MCMASTER UNIVERSITY Department of Kinesiology Kinesiology 1A03/1Y03/2Y03: Human Anatomy and Physiology I Term: Fall 2013 Instructor: Dr. Krista Howarth O2fceB: Te2l18x8ne: E-mowi:[email protected] Office Hours: Thursdays 10am-12pm or by appointment Instructional Assistant: Adrienne Tearle Office: IWC A102/C Te2l35x5ne: [email protected] Lab Technician: Christiane DeSavigny Office: IWC A102/B Te2l18x2/e: 867 E-measl:[email protected] DESCRIPTION An introduction to the anatomy and physiology of embryonic development, the nervous system, including special senses and the autonomic nervous system, as well as on overview of the musculoskeletal system, including bone, joint, and muscle physiology COURSE OBJECTIVES Course Content Objectives Upon completion of this course, the student will be able to: 1. Use anatomical terms to describe body structures, regions, relative positions and anatomical positions. 2. Explain homeostasis and how it is maintained in the body. 3. Describe the anatomical and physiological changes that occur during embryonic development from conception to birth. 2 4. Identify and describe the general characteristics, function, location and types of tissues found in the body. 5. Describe the organization and physiology of the nervous system and the components of nervous tissue. 6. Identify the location, organization and function of key structures in the central and peripheral nervous systems. 7. Describe the physiology of nervous tissue and the conduction of action potentials. 8. Identify the location, organization and function of key structures in the visual, auditory, balance, olfactory and gustatory systems. 9. Explain the physiology behind the sensory stimulation of the special senses and the connection to the central nervous system. 10. Identify the location, organization and function of key structures of the autonomic nervous system. 11. Describe the function, histology, structure, types, and formation of bone and bone tissue. 12. Identify the bones and prominent surface features of the axial and appendicular skeleton. 13. Describe the classifications of joints and their associated movements. 14. Describe the structure and histology of skeletal muscle tissue. 15. Explain the sliding filament model and the physiology of skeletal muscle fibers, including the neuromuscular junction, excitation-contraction coupling and cross- bridge action. 16. Explain muscle force production, contraction types and fiber types. 17. Identify and describe the general action of key skeletal muscles of the head and neck, vertebral column, thoracic region, abdominal wall, scapula, shoulder, upper limb, hip and lower limb. Skill and Value-Based Learning Objectives: Upon completion of this course, the student will demonstrate competencies in:  Personal organization and time management in order to multi-task, set priorities, and allocate time effectively to meet deadlines such as tests, prelab quizzes, exams, and lecture/lab attendance. 3  Professional interaction and communication via email, online forums, and face to face meetings with professors, staff, teaching assistants, and peers.  Teamwork and interpersonal skills by participation in small group laboratory exercises and/or initiating participation on discussion boards.  Displaying appropriate and respectful behaviour towards the human anatomy laboratory, individuals who have donated their bodies to science, and instructors, staff, teaching assistants, and peers.  Reading relevant texts and course materials and demonstrating comprehension by completing iclicker questions, weekly tests, prelab quizzes, and final exam. RESOURCES Required Resources:  Seeley’s Anatomy and Physiology, Tenth edition, Vanputte, Regan, and Russo. McGraw Hill, New York 2014.  Custom Lab Manual  i-Clicker (must be registered as per instructions in the bookstore) Optional resources:  The Princeton Review Human Anatomy and Physiology: A Companion Coloring Book EVALUATION Weekly tests: 30% (10 tests x 3%) Prelab Quizzes: 10% (5 quizzes x 2%). Biweekly lab attendance is mandatory. Lab quizzes will automatically by replaced by a 0% without proof of lab attendance. Prelab quizzes are released the Thursday before your lab and are due the following Monday at noon. iclicker questions 5% Due to the possibility of absences or technical difficulties, 90% of the questions correct over the term will equal 100% (eg. if 50 questions are asked, 45 correct responses will count as 100%). Marks will then be calculated as a percentage of this maximum. Final Exam: 55% (covering all course content) 4 ATTENDANCE Attending all sections of the course will be key to your success. All students are expected attend lecture and lab as well as complete all prelab quizzes, Friday tests, and exams. Attendance is MANDATORY at your lab. If you do not attend your scheduled lab, you will not be given the grades you achieved on your prelab quiz. Labs (IAHS 451) Labs take place biweekly: Labs first week Labs second week L01 T 9:30 - 11:20 L02 T 9:30 - 11:20 L03 T 11:30 - 13:20 L04 T 11:30 - 13:20 L05 T 13:30 - 15:20 L06 T 13:30 - 15:20 L07 W 9:30 - 11:20 L08 W 9:30 - 11:20 L09 W 11:30-13:20 L10 W 11:30-13:20 L11 R 11:30 -13:20 L12 R 11:30 -13:20 L13 R 13: 30 – 15:20 L14 R 13:30 – 15:20 Laboratory Safety WHIMIS 1A00 and HTH SCI 1BS0 are required safety courses for KIN 1A03/1Y03/2Y03. Laboratory Safety procedures will be reviewed during the first lab of the year. A number of the labs involve the use of human and animal specimens. You are expected to adhere to the laboratory guidelines at all times. Failure to do so will result in removal from the laboratory setting. Several labs will also involve examination of physiological responses on student volunteers. All risks and procedures are outlined in th
